Description


ROTOSCOPIC MACHINES is an interactive robotic installation produced for the Montreal Science Centre. It is composed of five revolving robotic arms suspended from the ceiling that react to the presence of viewers. At the end of each arm is a pan-tilt camera that transmits video images of the robot's point of view. This piece was conceived to illustrate different principles related to the theme of the exhibition at the Science Centre: Extreme Rotation.
